Why It’s Time to Switch from Ducted Gas Heating to efficient Electric Reverse Cycle heating!

Ducted gas heating has been a popular heating option for many Australian households, but with the rise of electric heating technology, it may be time to consider switching to an electric option.

Here are some benefits of replacing your ducted gas heating with an electric option.

Lower Carbon Footprint – A More Sustainable Heating Solution

Ducted gas heating systems release harmful greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides, into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. In contrast, electric heating systems are much more environmentally friendly, as they do not produce any harmful emissions. By switching to electric heating, you can reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Increased Efficiency – Lower Energy Bills

Electric heating systems are much more energy-efficient than ducted gas heating systems. Gas heating systems have an energy efficiency rating of around 5-6 stars, while electric heating systems can achieve ratings of up to 8-9 stars. This means that electric heating systems can provide the same level of warmth as gas heating systems, while using significantly less energy. By switching to electric heating, you can reduce your energy bills and save money in the long run.

Maximise Your Solar Output – AKA Free Heating & Cooling!

Over 40% of Adelaide households have a rooftop solar system – and many of those households do not have batteries. That means a lot of spare electricity is being sent back into the grid at a low rate, only benefiting the power companies. Why not use up that spare capacity to heat your home during the day while you are out, meaning your house will be warm when you return, pretty much free of charge!

Improved Safety – No Risk of Gas Leaks

Ducted gas heating systems can be hazardous, as they run on gas and are susceptible to gas leaks. Gas leaks can be deadly and pose a significant safety risk to you and your family. In contrast, electric heating systems are much safer, as there is no risk of gas leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning. By switching to electric heating, you can enjoy a safer and more secure heating option.

Quiet Operation – A More Comfortable Home Environment

Ducted gas heating systems can be noisy and disruptive, with the sound of gas burners and fans often audible throughout your home. In contrast, electric heating systems operate quietly and discreetly, providing a more comfortable home environment. By switching to electric heating, you can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere in your home.

More Design Flexibility – Aesthetic and Layout Options

Ducted gas heating systems require ducts and vents to be installed throughout your home, limiting your design options and the layout of your furniture. In contrast, electric heating systems do not require any ductwork and can be installed in various locations, providing more design flexibility and layout options for your home.

Replacing your ducted gas heating system with an electric option can provide numerous benefits, including a lower carbon footprint, increased efficiency, improved safety, quiet operation, and more design flexibility. If you’re looking to upgrade your home heating system, it’s time to consider switching to an electric option. Not only will you save money on your energy bills, but you’ll also enjoy a more sustainable, safer, and comfortable home environment.
